Production of a (Phase) Random Telegraph Field
The random telegraph (RT) field is one of the prototypical fluctuating electro-magnetic fields that has been used in theoretical studies of how non-linear optical processes respond to stochastic excitation. In this paper I will present a method for imposing RT phase fluctuations on to a laser beam. The main characteristic of the light is then that the phase jumps at random times between two fixed values.
